Mauricio Hernández Norambuena is one of the most significant oppositors to the chilean military dictatorship first and, later, to the "democratic" transition guided by the same dictator Pinochet (till his death). Mauricio Hernández Norambuena today is suffering the 4997day of an inhuman detention regime, that is to say 94.28 times what Washington Olivetto, the victim of the offence for which Mauricio is jailed, suffered during his kidnapping.
In 1976, during the dictatorship, Mauricio was a Communist Party militant, while in 1983 he was one of the founders of the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front (FPMR), an organization borned as the military organization of the Communist Party that later developed its own authonomy to fight and defeat the dictatorship on the military plan.
Mauricio was condemned many times in Chile as intellectual and material author of many actions developed by his own organization and he was arrested in 1993. Freed from prison in 1996 thanks to an operation of his organization, he was arrested in 2002 in Brasil for the kidnapping of a company manager and he was condemned to 30 years of prison.
